The Original

The first and the best garlic shrimp truck. We visit this truck at least once whenever on the island. The price seems to be getting higher, but the flavor stays the same, yummy.

Funky little place with fantastic Shrimp & rice. We had the garlic scampi and the firerock garlic scampi - firerock was by far more flavorful. Not much seating and no beer - having a beer really would have made it.

We stopped at Savage Shrimp for a quick bite to eat. We walked up to order at the counter and our food was done in 10 minutes. Food was brought to our outdoor seating area. We ate coconut fried shrimp that came with rice and coleslaw. We also ordered the savage shrimp that came with an awesome tomato broth and... More

Wanted some quick eats that didn't include red meats so this was perfect-o. Their special sauce makes the shrimp tacos memorable.

We were looking for some quick and easy meal after a day of traveling. This was a real hole in the wall place but it had the best shrimp plates. I got the garlic shrimp and my husband got some spicy version. Both were really good with generous amounts of shrimp. Would definitely recommend this place.

After arriving in Poipu, we went in search of our favorite shrimp food truck where we signed our names on the side almost 10 years ago. We couldn't find it and after asking around found that they had become a brick and mortar restaurant a couple of years back and were in the Kukui'ula Village Shopping Center right at the... More
